Hellstens Glashus is situated in the heart of what is today the most interesting, hip and popular area of Stockholm - Sodermalm. A colorful hotel that offer rooms in various sizes and design. This is your home away from home and a place for new discoveries. The history of the building dates back to the early 1900s when the posterior of the building was a metal works in which church bells for all over Sweden were formed. The house was later rebuilt into a dance theatre with the appropriate name “The Glass House”, which inspired us to the name Hellstens Glashus. Indeed it is reinforced by the unique glass facade. Hellstens Glashus is an ideal base to explore Stockholm and the artistical Sodermalm. Welcome!
This rather quiet neighborhood revolves around a postcard-like park with a dramatic fountain in its center and is definitely one of Stockholm’s showcase neighborhoods. Mariatorget, a central residential area, is the best Stockholm has to offer when it comes to juxtaposing architectural masterpieces with sophisticated art galleries, coffee shops and bars. Stockholmers love to spend their weekends in the park or one of the nearby coffee shops, so come to Mariatorget to meet the locals. The northern part of Mariatorget boasts historic buildings, beautiful cobblestone streets, and one of Stockholm’s best observation decks, Monteliusvägen, from where you can see an amazing view of the city hall and Stockholm’s old town.

We stayed here after arriving in Stockholm before going to the home of friends the next day. The price was very reasonable and the location in an older neighborhood perfect. And an excellent organic breakfast was included. It’s not hard to miss the hotel as...More

This small hotel is on the best location I think. In the heart of hipster Södermalm, a fashionable district of Stockholm. One minute walk to the underground to the rest of the city.
The interior of the lobby/restaurant is splendid. I would say Swedish design....More

Dear Lizzy, thank you for taking the time to write a little about your stay.
The heat wave that took over Sweden this summer is very uncommon, since we usually have the opposite problem with the cold.
We where not prepared for it, and we're...More
Others have already mentioned the oppressive heat, lack of airflow, and noisy street, so I won't dwell on those particulars. Through no fault of their own, Stockholm was simply unbearably hot. As a result, the hotels were unprepared. No fans available for purchase anywhere in...More

The breakfast buffet is available (just walk down and help yourself) until 10:00 am daily and about an hour later on the weekends. There are hotel staff tending to the buffet and keeping the selections replenished. Don't hesitate to ask them for anything you need. For instance, the hotel had gluten free bread for toast, but it was not out. They were happy to make my toast to order. One morning they were out of soft boiled eggs when I went to breakfast, but they kindly made two for me. Enjoy your time in Stockholm!
